Hi

I have this data
Serial Number          Service_Order
X000701                    1511293
X000701                    1511293
X000701                    1510831
X000701                    1510831
X000881                 1622890

I need to know the count of service orders  for a serial number.
In this case I would need
X000701        2
X000881    1

I apologize I need a TSQL solution

select count(SerialNumber) where Service_Order = '1511293'

You will need to pass the specific serial number to get the count though.

service_order t1 INNER JOIN service_order_labor t2 ON t1.service_order_number = t2.service_order_number
WHERE
t2.line_type = 'L'
AND t1.serial_number = @sno
AND t1.complete_date_sid BETWEEN @startdate AND @endDate
) a
